मन्त्र -- ॐ श्रीं ॐ हीं श्रीं हीं क्लीं श्रीं क्लीं वित्तेश्वराय नम: ॥
ऊँ यक्षाय कुबेराय वैश्रणवाय धनधान्यादिपतये ।
धनधान्यसमृद्धि में देहि देहि दापय दापय स्वाहा ।।
According to the ‘Purans’ [Vedic books of Hinduism]Lord Kuber is the master of all living beings ,of any form…..demi-gods,shape shifters, hybrids/transgender…..everyone who walks the heavens and earth and everything in between. Lord of wealth, Kuber, is also the lord of all characters and their roots. As per the Purans, mastery over any one character bestows a person with fame and untold fortunes, whereas Lord Kuber has acquired mastery over all characters. Anything and everything, overt and covert is under the tutelage of Lord Kuber.
Lord Kuber is famously known as the wealth keeper of the Lords and its chief. It is also mentioned in the Mahabharata, that ‘Ghanishtha Nakshatra’ [a planet] and Bhargav –Shukra [planet Venus] always accompany Lord Kuber. Without the blessings of these three a person cannot attain wealth or prosperity. Therefore it is impertinent that all three are prayed to and pleased to beget wealth and prosperity.
With the permission of Lord Bramha, Lord Kuber resides in the second to none, Lanka city, created by lord Vishwakarma, in the Trikut Hills. Lord Kuber is an ardent follower of Lord Shiva. Pleased with the hard penance which Lord Kuber undertook ,Lord Shiva gave him a place amongst his friends and allowed him to reside in the city of Alkapuri.All recitations ,incantations, rituals and procedures of praying ,fasting and invoking pleasures related to Lord Kuber are given in the various Hindu Vedic books viz; Shrividharnav , Mantra Mahanarva,Mantra Mahodhadhi,Shritatvanidhi and Vishnu Dharmotaradi.
Accordingly all kinds of mantras can be obtained be it the elaborated version or the condensed form, everything can be had from the mentioned books. In one of the important mentions depicts Lord Kuber being seated on a palanquin and also he is shown seated on an airplane [as envisaged in those time] all virtues accompany him as an adornment to his attire .In one hand he holds the mace and the other is poised, offering blessings and benevolence for unforetold wealth and prosperity. His countenance is jovial, with a glow and has a rotund body. One should always remember him and pray to him, in this form.
Unlike any other mantra, the incantations to Lord Kuber are recited facing the Southern direction. Praying to Lord Kuber as specified in the Shashtras [religious books], reciting incantations, marking of vermillion marks, meditating on his name, berefts a person of misery and sufferings. Being a friend to Lord Shiva, praying to Lord Kuber also helps in warding off all dangers and obstacles. These mantras and yantras provide all things desired, good fortune, prosperity, happiness and harmony. The devotees are blessed with healthy children, family happiness, illness-free life and free from any kind of suffering .They enjoy a happy, healthy and prosperous life.
